The Bishop presented the following 

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF ST. MARY's SCHOOL. 

In accordance with the requirements of the charter of incorporation 
of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, the Trustees of said School, through their 
President and Secretary, beg to submit the following report : 

The past year has been a critical year for the School. St. Mary's was 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 23 

for fifty-seven years the expression of the character and purposes of its 
revered founder and of his faithful and noble son. In the course of 
nature their work came to an end. The passing of the School under a 
different management, and the effort to establish it permanently upon 
another basis, necessarily produced many changes. It is always a 
question wJiether an old institution can pass into a new phase of being 
without losing much of its power and influence The past year has 
represented the coming in of new elements into the life of the School, 
and the attempt to adjust it to the pressing demands of the times. The 
new Rector of the School for the first time began the administration of 
the School under conditions in some degree of his own creation, and 
with methods and aims representing his ideals and hopes. The Trustees 
have felt that during the past year, much more than during any pre- 
vious year of their control, St. Mary's was upon trial and in a crisis of 
its history. 

It is therefore with a feeling of mingled thankfulness for the past 
and hope for the future, that they present this their fifth annual report 
to this Convention. They have to report much work done, much that 
is desirable accomplished, and much that needs to be done revealed in 
the experience of the year just past. 

In the first place, they have to report a most gratifying increase in 
the number of boarding pupils. There has been an average attendance 
of over one hundred boarders, with an aggregate during the year of 
two hundred and one pupils of all classes, not including the Kinder- 
garten Department, which has been removed from immediate connec- 
tion with the School, and is now established nearer the center of popu- 
lation in the city under one of our most cultivated and valued 
graduates. 

To carry on the work of the School, and to give due attention to the 
pupils, there are twenty-one officers and teachers employed. The 
Trustees are much gratified to be able to report that tlie Rector and liis 
admirable assistants and subordinates deserve and enjoy the fullest 
confidence and respect of the public, and more especially of the friends 
and patrons of the School. Their work during the past year has been 
faithful and effective. The Trustees are further assured that the tone 
of the School, both intellectual and moral, is high and pure. A mutual 
sympathy and enthusiasm animates teachers and pupils. The invalu- 
able spirit of loyalty to St. Mary's and devotion to its interests, which 
characterized the School under its founder and his immediate succes- 
sor, has not been lost. There has been no break in the continuity of 
sentiment. There is no new St. Mary's. There is only the same old St. 
Mary's, thankful for and proud of its past, and determined to be worthy 
of it by building well and nobly upon the old foundations a structure 
of ever increasing beauty and usefulness. 

In this connection it may be well to say that the re-arrangement of 



24 Journal of Proceedings 

the course of study, and the raising of the requirements for graduation, 
have stimulated the intellectual and scholarly ambition of the pupils, 
and have brought the School nearer to what the Diocesan School of the 
Carolinas should and must be. The transition from th? old curriculum 
to the new has been managed with admirable skill and judgment, and 
has been a help rather than a hindrance even in the very process of 
the change. 

The Trustees are pleased to report that at their annual meeting in 
June. 1900, they fulfilled their obligations to the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina by establishing two free scholarships, ''The Mary E. Chapeau 
Scholarship" for a daughter of a Clergyman, and '-The Mary Ruffln 
Smith Scholarship,'' each to be enjoyed by nominees of the Bishop of 
North Carolina ; and that during the past year both have been held by 
worthy and promising pupils. They also report that a scholarship simi- 
lar to the former of those already named has been founded by them in 
consideration of the investment of the sum of three thousand dollars 
with the Trustees of the Diocese of East Carolina for that purpose, and 
has during the past year been filled by the Bishop of East Carolina's 
nominee, the daughter of a late most worthy Clergyman of that Diocese. 

The Trustees do not think it necessary or desirable to continue to en- 
cumber their reports to this Convention with detailed financial state- 
ments and accounts of the Treasurer and of the Agents of the Board. 
These are furnished to the annual meetings of the Trustees, who alone 
are competent to receive and to deal with them. But the financial 
situation is a very vital matter in the carrying on of this work, and 
they will endeavor to make to the Convention, as briefly and succinctly 
as possible, an intelligible statement of the present financial condition 
of the School. 

First, as to the School itself and its internal management: The Trus- 
tees remind the Convention of the fact that when they assumed control 
of St. Mary's School, they laid down the principle of reducing the 
school charges to such a rate as would provide for the running expenses 
of the School upon an economical basis, with only a small margin of 
possible profit towards the payment of the interest on the debt. It was 
determined that the Diocesan School of the Carolinas should not be a 
school for the benefit of the daughters of the rich, from which those of 
moderate means should be excluded by high charges. This principle 
has been adhere i to. and the Trustees are proud to report that in their 
opinion there is not a school in the country where the same advantages 
can be enjoyed at such moderate cost. This must be borne in mind in 
considering the financial condition. 

The fiscal year of the Corporation is from May 1st to May 1st. and 
this report therefore covers the twelve months from May 1st. 1900. to 
May 1st. 1901. 

During the past year, if the School were charged with only its proper 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1901. 25 

nmning expenses and a reasonable amount for ordinary repairs, the 
income of the School would lull}' satisfy all those cliarges. with pro- 
vision made for the annual proportion of insurance on tlie buildings, 
and in addition thereto a very satisfactory balance to be applied to the 
interest on the debt. But the sudden and very great increase in the 
number of boarding pupils who attended at the opening of the session 
in September. 1900, proved a very great temporary emi arrassment. 
There was not room to house them in the School buildings, and furni- 
ture, bedding and supplies of all kinds were wanting for their proper 
comfort and accommodation. While it is quite proper to charge to the 
running expenses of a school current replacing of fui-niture, bedding, 
crockery, table linen, etc.. the original supply and outfit in such things 
does not belong to ordinary expenses. In such extraordinary expenses 
as these, which do not belong to the regular expenses of the School, 
there was during the past year an outlay by the Rector of something 
over twenty-five hundred dollars. The accounts for the year have not 
been closed, and the bills for tuition, etc.. liave not been collected in 
full, so that it is impossible to say how the account for the year when 
stated will stand. It is not expected, however, that after paying the 
above large extraordinary expenses there will be any considerable 
margin of profit. But the Trustees feel that the above exhibit is far 
from being a discreditable or unsatisfactory one. 

When we come to the financial condition of the Corporation as dis- 
tinct from the School proper, an analagous state of things presents 
itself. The Trustees have, during the past year, from May 1st. 1900. to 
May 1st, 1901, received a large sum of money— something like 818,000. 
This has been paid in on various accounts as briefly set forth below : 

From Diocese of North Carolina. $ 960.68 

East Carolina... 3.000 00 

" Principal and interest of notes 7.036.99 

" Cash subscriptions 5,836.46 

" Dr. Smedes's estate, rents 831.25 

" Dividend on insurance policy 34.00 

Balance on hand May 1st. 1900 651.24 

$18,350.57 

With this great sum of money paid into their hands, it would seem 
that the Trustees should have been able to pay off a very large part of 
the debt remaining on the property. And had the School been less 
prosperous they would have been able to pay at least six thousand dol- 
lars more than they have paid. But with the unexpectedly large num- 
ber of pupils, it had to be considered how they could be provided for. 
For some months this was done by renting a large house near the 
School at the rate of six hundred dollars a year. This, however, could 



26 Journal of Proceedings 

be only a temporary expedient. Furthermore, the Trustees until re- 
cently had been renting from Mrs. Smedes all the furniture and school 
fixtures in use in the school at five hundred dollars a year. Some ar- 
rangement had to be made that the School might own its furniture and 
apparatus. The Trustees therefore proceeded to erect a building for 
the residence of the Rector of the School. They also felt themselves 
obliged by the demands of their patrons and the best friends of the 
School to increase very greatly the bathing facilities and other internal 
conveniences of the school buildings, and to erect a reasonably conve- 
nient infirmary : also to build a number of practice rooms for the music 
pupils, and to re-arrange and w^hoUy remodel the interior of the west 
" Roch House.'' These w^ere not only very great and valuable improve- 
ments in themselves, and demanded by the necessities of the case and 
the present conditions of school patronage, but bj^ these changes and 
by the erection of these additional buildings, accommodations were 
provided within our own buildings for forty additional iDupils, which, 
at $200 each, means an additional income of $8,000 annually. Under 
these circumstances the Trustees felt that they could not refuse to do 
what was so absolutely necessary for carrying on the work of the School. 
Moreover, it must be said that the representatives of East Carolina at 
the last annual meeting of the Trustees understood and agreed that 
the $3,000 from that Diocese should be expended in the discretion of 
the Trustees ; the payment of nearly a thousand dollars from the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina was wholly unconditional ; several considerable 
subscriptions were paid in expressly to enable this particular work to 
be done : and finally the Trustees felt that all funds iri their hands were 
entrusted to them to be used in their sound discretion for the further- 
ance of the best interests of the School, and for its permanent estab- 
lishment and development to meet the demands and hopes of the 
Church . 

With this very brief and inadequate explanation they submit the fol- 
lowing compendious statement of the disbursement of the funds in 
their hands during the year covered by this report : 

Salary and expenses of agents soliciting contribu- 
tions, pupils, etc . . . - $2,285.38 

Paid on principal of debt 2,000.00 

Paid on interest 1.783.00 

Loan returned 690.00 

Interest 38.20 

Rector's house . .. 2,473.11 

Infirmary, practice rooms, plumbing, remodelling 

"Rock House," etc.... ...- 3,936.43 

On account of building for kindergarten 165.00 

Carried forward 13.371.12 



Diocese of Nortfi Carolina^ 1901. 27 

Brought forward ...$13,371.12 

Insurance 301.23 

Rent on furniture 479. 17 

Purchase of furniture 3,000 00 

Cash balance May 1. 1901 860.01 

18,011.52 
Sundry expenses of corj)oration 339 05 

18,350,57 

The Trustees are happy to say that since May 1st nearly two thousand 
dollars in cash subscriptions has been received, and that $2,000. with 
interest to date of payment, has been paid upon the debt, so that at 
this present the principal debt is $27,000. with all interest paid so far 
as the same has fallen due ; and there are in the hands of the Treasurer 
notes and subscriptions to the amount of over $10,000, so that the prin- 
cipal of the debt outstanding and unprovided for is something less 
than $17,000. 

They can not close this report without expressing their sense of the 

great importance to the School of the work done by the Rev. Aldred 

A. Pruden. the financial agent of the School, through whose unwearied 

exertions so large a part of the debt has been paid or provided for, and 

their regret that they can no longer retain his services. They would 

express also their deep sense of the faithful services of all the officers. 

teachers, and other agents of the School, and of the Board of Trustees. 

All have labored faithfully and well. And the President and Secretary 

in presenting this report take the liberty of saying that those faithful 

laymen and Clergymen serving on the Executive Committee deserve 

the special thanks of the Church for the constant and ready devotion 

of their time and energies to the work of St. Mary's School. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Jos. Blount Cheshire.

K. P. Battle. Jr..

pot t, shows that nearly $4,000 in contributions were received during | 
the year, and that contributions in kind have been as generous as usual; 
so that an average of about sixty children have been comfortably sup- 
plied with food, raiment and schooling. 

The Auditing Committee report that they have found the Superin- 
tendent's accounts correct and properly kept. 

The Trustee of Endowment Funds reported that he had loaned the 
funds in his hands, and that they were paying interest. The condition 
of the premises, appearance aud bearing of the children, and general 
aspect of the Institution all bear witness to wise and judicious 
management on the part of the Superintendent and his assistants, 
while his accounts and report show good judgment and economy. 

The Board would call attention to several improvements that are 
much needed, to supply which will require special contributions. The 
first in order, and perhaps in importance, is the furnishing of bathing 
apartments for the children. The Rev. Mr. Pruden procured some 
funds for this purpose But some two or three hundred dollars more 
will be necessary to provide what is wanted. 

An industrial building is also much needed, with apartments for car- 
peiitering. smithing, shoemaking, printing, etc. 

A new organ for the Chapel is also very much needed. The one 
kindly furnished by a lady of Wilmington several j^ears since, has 
Cca.sed to be serviceable, and the Chapel is without an organ. 

The Messengej^ of Hope is a most important auxiliary to the work of 
the Orphanage, and should receive the active support of all the friends 
of the Institution. The Superintendent should be enabled to employ 
an assistant in its management, so that he could devote more of his 
time to the work of the Orphanage. If there was a canvassing agent in 
every congregation who would coUecc and forward subscrifitions with- 
out charge, the income from the paper would be so increased that this 
could be done and it would be a great help to the Institution. 

There is great need of a small endowment for the Orphanage. The 
Board notes with pleasure that something has been done in this direc- 
tion, a generous layman of East Carolina having given $2,000, and 
oth'^rs have given smaller .sums. We hope and ask that others will do 
likewise, until an income of some |2.000 a year is secured. This would 
enable the Institution to feed and clothe nearly one hundred children 
with about the same amount of contributions we now receive, as a large 
portion of the cash paid out for current expenses is for salaries of Su- 
perintendent and other employes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. A. Osborne.

KEPOKT OF THE KEY. W. J. SMIIH SUPEKINTENUKN T OF 1 HE THOMP- 
SON OKPHANAGE AND I'KAINING INSTirUTION. 

I To the Board of Managers, Greeting : 

^ It is again mj' privilege and duty to present to vou my annual report 
i as Superintendent of the Orphanage, and in doing so I wish, first of all, 
[to express my devout thankfulness to Almightj' God for the many 
! blessings which He has vouchsafed us during the past year. It is true 
I that we have had some sickness, which is no more than may be expec-ted 
\ in so large a family as ours, especially during an epidemic, but the lives 
I of all the children have been spared for future usefulness, we hope. 
, both to themselves and to others. The general prevalence of the grip 
this past winter exposed us to the liability of contracting that dread 
disease, and it did finally lay hold upon us with its relentless grasp. 
In reporting the cases of sickness I shall classify them as far as possi- 
ble, and give the number occurring in each house. In Thompson Hall 
there were two cases of pneumonia, twenty-five of the grip, eighteen 
of chills and fever, and two slight accidents. In Bronson Hall there 
was one case of typhoid fever, one of pneumonia, twenty of the grip, 
fourteen of chills and fever, and one accident. One of the boys had 
the back of his hand badly cut with an axe, and it may result in a par- 
tial disuse of his fingers. The health of the children generally at pres- 
ent is very good. Dr. Capehart continued to act as our physician till 
June, when he tendered his resignation and was succeeded by Dr. 
Crowell. who accepted the position for the term of twelve months. 
Both of these gentlemen took a kind interest in the welfare of the chil- 
dren, for which we are verj^ grateful. Owing to a pressure of work and 
a prolonged absence from the city, Dr. Crowell has tendered his resig- 
nation to be acted upon at this meeting of your Body. 

During the past year repairs and improvements have been made at a 
cost of something over a hundred dollars, besides the forty-five dollars 
expended by the Orphanage Gruild of St. Peter's Parish, Charlotte, on 
Thompson Hall. More would have been done but for a dread of a de- 
ficit in the treasury. Such a calamity did happen at one time, but the 
friends of the Institution came nobly to the rescue, and by their gener- 
ous contributions on Thanksgiving Day, and since that time, both in 
cash and kind, they have relieved the pressure, and placed our finances 
on a solid basis. We hope, however, that this fact will not cause any 
persons to withhold their contributions with the idea that they are not 
needed, for we syq obliged to have a reserve fund on hand to meet the 
demands of the dull summer months. On reference to the treasurer's 
statement it will be seen that the receipts during the past year were 
less than the year previous, and yet the balance on hand is greater. It 
should be remembered, however, that the fiscal year closed a moiitli 
earlier this year m order that the treasurer might have time to balance

his accounts, and make out his report before the meeting of th3 Board, 
The farm has done a little better than ic did last year, though there 
has been a falling off in the supplj' of milk, owing partly to having a 
smaller number of cows. The Messencjer of Hope, a very helpful and 
neoessary assistance to our work, has fallen much below its usual show. 
in^>-. owing in a great measure to the fact that the field has not been 
thoroughly canvassed. Our agent, Miss Whitaker, has had sickness in 
her family, besides other hindrances, and hence has been able to travel 
over only a part of the State. The heavy rains this spring have done 
considerable damage to the low grounds, involving some expense, and 
delaying the planting of the crop. The school. I think, has done good 
work throughout the year. Mrs. C. J. Pierce, of Greensboro. Ala., was 
in charge of the Senior department from September until the Christinas 
holidays, and gave eatire satisfaction. Since that time. Miss White, 
who had charge of the Primary department a part of the previous year 
has succeeded Mrs. Pierce, and filled the position very acceptably. .Miss 
Essie Call, returned to the Orphanage in September, and has taught the 
Primary department since that time, doing. I believe, good work. Miss 
Mackay and Miss Capehart have remained faithful at their posts as 
matrons, and I wish to express my special appreciation of their services 
during my long att;ack of sickness last fall. They each took a month's 
vacation during the summer, and in their absence their places were 
filled by Miss Florence M. Foote. of Auburn. Va.. who devoted herself 
very energetically to the work. 

During the fall Miss Lola E. Walton, of Morganton, spent a month 
with us as assistant in diff:erent ways, and since January she has been 
employed as sewing teacher, and as nurse, when necessary. I regret 
very much that we shall lose her valuable services after the beginning 
of the summer, as she has accepted the position of Matron of the In- 
firmary at St. Mary's School. The children have taken much interest 
in the sewing school, and I hope it can be continued, with the assist- 
ance of Miss Cameron and her faithful "Messengers " I also hope that 
during the next year the carpenter shop and shoe shop will be opened. 
Much has been done by our friends to make the children more comfort- 
able, and to lessen our expenses, all of which has been duly acknowl- 
edged, and for which I wish again to express our thanks, especially for 
the pantry supplies. The Rev. Mr. Pruden has shown a kind and active 
interest in the Orphanage in his efforts to supply !> oth houses with bath- 
rooms — a long and much felt want. So far one hundred and twenty 
dollars have been contributed for this purpose, but for various good 
reasons work has not yet commenced The Junior Auxiliary of Christ 
Church, Raleigh, has given $188.00 for the purchase and endowment of 
a cot to be known as "The Ada Foster Memorial Cot." and Mrs. Cowles. 
of Los Angeles, Cal., has added $12.50 more to the " Mary Louise Cowles 
Memorial Fund." 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 31 

During the year we have received into the Orphanage fourteen chil- 
dren, seven from the Diocese of North Carolina, two of whom had been 
with us before, one from East Carolina, and six from the District of 
Asheville. Five have been provided with homes, four have returned 
to their fathers, four to their mothers, and four have left without per- 
mission. 

The boys who ran away were from ten to fourteen years old when 
they came here and were more or less restless and troublesome the 
whole time they were with us. After several years experience in the 
work, I have come to the conclusion that boys should not be received over 
eight years old, nor girls over ten. unless for some specially urgent 
reason, and I would also recommend that we should be more particular 
as to the character of the children whom we receive, for one bad child 
can undo the work of many good teachers, and in my opinion the 
Orphanage should not be regarded as a reformatory for youthful 
criminals. 

I would also recommend that definite and specific regulations should 
be laid down as to the putting out of children into the homes of other 
people. 

The present number of children in the Orphanage is fifty-nine— thirty 
from the Diocese of North Carolina, sixteen from the Diocese of East 
Carolina, and thirteen from the District of Asheville. 

Before closing \nj report, I would further recommend that some 
assistance be given the Superintendent in keeping his accounts, and 
also in getting out the paper, so that he may devote more time to the 
direct management of the Institution. 

In conclusion, I wish again to thank all of our good friends through- 
out the State, as well as those beyond its borders, and especially those 
in our own city of Charlotte, for their continued interest in the work. 
Specially do I wish to thank those friends in the city who have so 
gladly and willingly given their professional services to the children. 
Specially, too, do I wish to thank the Railroads and Express Company 
for their uniform courtesy and valuable assistance in our work. 

Following is my statement as treasurer for the past year :

On motion of the Rev. Dr. Marshall, the hist two reports 
were referred to special committees of five each, and the 
Bishop appointed as members of these the following persons : 

On St. Mary's School, Rev. I. McK. Pittenger, D.D., the

The Rev. A. B. Hunter presented the follow report, which, 
on his motion, was referred to the Committee on the State 
of the Church : 

The Principal of St. Augustine's School begs to report that during 
the past year there have been in the Institution sixteen teachers and 
nearly three Imndred pupils, and there have been over one hundred 
boarding nupils. F(3r the first time systematic instruction in carpen- 
try and printing has been given to all the young men of the School, 
cooking and sewing having already been a part of the course for the 
girls. The young men have erected a six-room cottage for one of the 
married teachers. An important drain has been laid, grading has been 
continued, and the work of the farm kept up There are two graduates 
in the Collegiate Department and three in the Normal Department. 
There has been one graduate from the Training School for Nurses, and 
the course there has been lengthened to two years. There have been 

eighty patients in St. Agnes* Hospital. 

A. B. Hunter. 

Principal. 

Mr. John Wilkes presented the reports of the Managers 
of St. Peter's Hospital and the Good Samaritan Hospital 
at Charlotte. (See Appendix B.) 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 33 

On motion of the Kev. Dr. Marshall, the thanks of the 
Convention were presented to the Rev. A. A. Pruden, late 
Financial Agent of St. Mary's School, for his very faithful 
and efficient labors in raising funds for the purchase of the 
property. 

The Rev. E. A. Osborne presented the following 

REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE MISSIONARY COMMITTEE. 

The Executive Missionary Committee respectfully report as follows : 

There are 14 ministers who receive stipends for missionary work in 
the Diocese, including the Archdeacon ; but with the exception of the 
Archdeacon the principal portion of their support comes from the peo- 
ple to whom they minister. The Treasurer reports that he has received 
during the year §3,362,70 for missionary purposes. Nine hundred and 
twenty dollars of this amount was collected by the Archdeacon. The 
Treasurer's disbursements amount to §3, 508. 53, or $145.83 more than he 
has received. This is an improvement on last year's financial condi- 
tion, the year having begun with a deficit of §444.82. Th^ Treasurer 
has paid off all the missionary stipends, and reduced the deficiency to 
$145.83, as stated. 

The reports of those doing missionary work show that they have been 
active and faithful in their labors. The mission schools of the Diocese 
are doing most excellent work, and are most important agencies in the 
mission field, and their number should be largely increased, if we had 
the means of support. In fact, they are essential for effective and 
thorough missionary work. 

The Committee earnestly appeal to the members of the Church in the 
Diocese for their hearty co-operation in their efforts to extend and carry 
on the mission work of the Church. There are many communities in 
the Diocese where there are from one to six or eight families who are 
without the services of the Church, while there are many others, in 
fact whole counties, in w-hich the teachings of the Church are un- 
known, and in many sections there is scarcely any Christian teaching 
of any kind. 

There are nearly 100,000 souls gathered around the numerous cotton 
mills in the Diocese who are in much spiritual destitution, who claim 
our sympathy and aid. 

It has been truly said that the test of vitality in the Church is inter- 
est in missionary work. While there is evidence of such interest on 
the part of many of our people, the interest is not what it should be ; 
and we must think that the deficiency arises from a lack of realizing 
the needs and opportunities of the Church. If the importance and 
necessities of the work were constantly proclaimed from every pulpit, 
3 



34 Journal of Proceedings 

written up in the Messenger of Hope, and agitated in monthly meet- 
ings of the congregations, and by Guilds and local societies until every 
member of the Church, old enough to understand the subject, should 
become acquainted with the needs of the work, we think there would 
be found plenty of laborers and means for their support. 

E. A, Osborne, 
For the Committee. 

On motion, the Convention adjourned to meet tomorrow 
morning at 9 o'clock. 



After Evening Prayer at 8 o'clock, by the Eev. Messrs.

I. MCK. PiTTENGER, 

Coinmissioner . 
The Kev. F. W. Hilliard presented the following 

KEPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CANONS. 

The Committee on Canons, to whom was referred a certain preamble 
and resolution on the subject of the metes and bounds of Parishes and 
Missions, introduced by Mr. Iredell Hilliard in the Convention of 1900, 
beg leave respectfully to report : 

The only provision made by the General Convention with regard to 
Parish boundaries is one which leaves them to be determined by the 
Diocesan Convention, and, until action is taken by that body,- by the 
Bishop and Standing Committee. See Title III, Canon 3, Section ii. 
and Title I, Canon 18, Section vi. 

It is to be presumed that in this Diocese neither body has felt the ne- 
cessity of action, and this necessitj^ does not now arise from the rela- 
tions of Parishes which are, in any practical sense, contiguous to 
one another, but rather from the fact that Parishes are not contiguous, 
but leave large spaces out in the cold, for which none of them is re- 
sponsible. 

The first thing necessary for these spaces, in the way of organization, 
is that they be defined. But this definition can hardly be accomplished 
at present, except indirectly — that is, by the definition of the bounda- 
ries of the Parishes in their neighborhood. 

The first thing then to be done is to make some such definition, and 
the townships of the various counties, which indeed are mentioned in 
this connection in Title I, Canon 18, Sec. vi, of the Digest, seem to 
make this possible. A request from the Convention to the Bishop and 
Standing Committee to co-operate with Rectors and Vestries of the 
several Parishes in defining their limits seems to your committee the 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1901. 37 

only step necessary or desirable at present with regard to the subjects 
treated in the above-mentioned preamble and resolution. 

Your committee recommend the adoption of the following resolution: 

Resolved, That the Bishop and Standing Committee be requested to 
co-operate with the Rectors and Vestries of the Diocese in deiining the 
limits of the various Parishes. 

F. W. HiLLIARD. 

Chairman. 

The resolution appended to the report was, on motion,

Resolved, That the Secretary of the Convocation be requested to pre- 
sent a memorial to the next Convention, suggesting the propriety of the 
appointment of a special Treasurer for Diocesan Missions.

The amount reported in the Journal of 1900, upon which the assess- 
ment is to be levied, is $23,454.26. 

An assessment of 13>^ per cent upon this sum will yield $3,160. 

These two amounts, together with what will probably be collected 
upon arrearages, it is thought, will provide for the expenses of the 
Diocese for the ensuing year. 

The Committee offer the following resolution : 

Resolved. That the arrearages of certain Parishes and Missions be 
remitted, as follows : St. Mary's. Edgecombe, $37.65 ; Emmanuel, 



Diocese of North Caroli7ia^ 1901. 41 

Southern Pines, $69.03 : St. Paul's, Winston, amount due up to May, 
1900 ; St. Bartholomew's, Pittsboro. $36.62 ; St. Barnabas. Greensboro, 
$50. Respectfully submitted, 

I. McK. PiTTENGER. 

Chairman. 

The resolution offered by the Committee was adopted. 

On motion of the Rev. F. J. Murdoch, D.D., the ratio of 
assessment for the ensuing year was declared to be 13 J per 
cent. 

Mr. J. Cameron Buxton presented the report of the Spe 
cial Commiotee on the report of the Managers of the Thomp 
son Orphanage, as follows : 

The Committee to whoiii was referred the Report of the Board of 
Managers of the Thompson Orphanage and Training Institution respect- 
fully report : 

That having considered the various matters referred to in the report 
of the Managers and in that of the Superintendent appended thereto, 
we can not too strongly commend this Institution of the Church to the 
beneficent consideration of the various Parishes in the Diocese. It is 
doing a fine work as it is, but the possibilities are even very much 
greater, were the means at hand to accomplish them. 

We were struck with the fact that thirty-two out of a total number 
of fifty-nine inmates should have had chills and fever. There must be 
some local cause for such prevalence of malaria, and we would recom- 
mend that the Board of Managers inquire into the matter and take 
steps to remedy this evil, which must sooner or later seriously affect 
the health of the children. 

We refer the recommendations made by the Superintendent as to the 
restrictions upon the ages of children at the time of admission to the 
Orphanage to the Board of Managers, as well as the regulations as to 
the putting out of children into the homes of other people. 

The Thompson Orphanage is now one of the recognized institutions 
of this Church, and appeals to us as almost no other institution of the 
Church does. 

Respectfully submitted. J. C. Buxton. 

For the Committee. 

On motion of the Rev. Dr. Pittenger, the basis of the 
Assessment for the Episcopal and Contingent Fund was 
declared to be the stipulated annual salary of the Minister

of the Parish or Mission and the amount of current 
expenses. 

The Eev. A. B. Hunter presented the following report; 

The Special Committee to whom was referred so much of the Bishop's 
Address as relates to the election of Deputies to the General Conven-

offer the following resolution : 

Resolved, That a special collection be made in each Parish and Mis- 
sion prior to September 1 for the purpose of defraying the expenses of

A. B. Hunter, 
Chas. E. Johnson, 
J. C. Buxton, 

Committee. 

On motion of Mr. R. H. Lewis, M.D., the resolution 
offered by the Rev. Dr. Murdoch as to the ratio of Assess- 
ment was reconsidered. 

Mr. Chas. E Johnson moved that the ratio be 15 per 
cent, bu: the motion was not agreed to 

Dr. Lewis asked for unanimous consent to act at once 
upon the repeal of Chapter 1, Canon XII, Section iii. Con- 
sent was given and the section was, on his motion, repealed. 

On motion of Dr. Lewis, the resolution offered by the 
Special Committee was adopted. 

Mr. Wm. L. London moved that a sum not exceeding 
$150 be appropriated to the payment of the expenses of 
each Clerical Deputy. 

The Rev A. A. Pruden moved to amend by allowing the 
payment of $200 to each Deputy, beginning with the one 
having the highest number of votes, as far as the sum 
received for the special purpose shall admit. 

The amendment was not agreed to, and the resolution of 
Mr. London was adopted. 

The Convention proceeded to the election of Deputies to 
the General Convention. The Bishop appointed Messrs. 
W. G. Rocrers and W. E. Stone to receive the votes of the 



Diocese of North Carolina,^ 1901. 43 

Clerg\% and the Kev. Messrs. A. B. Hunter and Charles 
Fetter, those of the laity. 

The Tellers having retired, by unanimous consent the 
business of the Convention proceeded. 

The Kev. F. W. Hilliard presented the following Memorial 
of the late Rev. Jos. W. Murphy, which was, on motion, 
adopted by a rising vote: 

Your Committee, to whom was referred that part of the Bishop's 
Address which referred to the late Joseph Wiggins Murphy, Priest, beg 
leave respectfully to report : 

The particulars connected with the parentage and earliest years of 
Mr. Murphy, presented by the Bishop, we do not deem it necessary to 
recapitulate. As the deceased presents himself to us we find him at 
the School of the Prophets, established by Bishop Ives, at Valle Crucis. 
Here appeared something of that clearness of vision and inflexible 
fidelity to the truth which was peculiarly his. The greater and greater 
leaning towards Roman teaching, which occurred at Valle Crucis. was 
clearly seen and carefully guarded against by the young student. 

Mr. Murphy soon passed under the direction and care of the Rev. 
Edward M. Forbes, to whom several students for the ministry, multi- 
tudes of lay pupils, loving parishioners, and all the clergy and laity of 
the old Albemarle Convocation looked up with a genuine affection and 
reverence, which have been given to few of our Priests. 

From Mr. Forbes' care Mr. Murphy passed, not immediately, but very 
soon, to that pastorate which placed him immediately upon the roll of 
those absolutely reliable, fearless, consistent, and scrupulously exact 
men who have most helped, adorned, and crowned with honor in the 
State of North Carolina, the charge of St. David's Church, Scupper- 
nong. Washington County. 

When the war came the young men of Mr. Murphy's parish and 
neighborhood seem to have entered the army almost en masse, and took 
with them, as of course, their Rector as their Chaplain. Colonel, Adju- 
tant, Surgeon and other officers were from among his people. During 
his service in the army his work was like all his work, absolutely faith- 
ful, and involved him in manj^ trials and dangers. 

After a few j^ears' rectorship in Henderson. Mr. IMurphy removed to 
Pennsylvania, but before very long was back in the scenes of his stu- 
dent days — Elizabeth City. There he commended himself, as he had 
done elsewhere, to the people whom he served. while clergy and laity in 
the resuscitated Albemarle Convocation gave him a warm and appreci- 
ative welcome. 

His next charge was a rural parish in Maryland, with a people of so 



44 Journal of Proceedings 

warm and generous a temper that he would hardly have left them but 
for a call to a rare old North Carolina Parish like Hillsboro. where also 
were some of his dear friends from Scuppernong. 

His life in Hillsboro is well known to the Church in this Diocese, as 
that of a loving and self-sacrificing priest, who labored until he could 
do the required work no longer, and only then left, and having left 
still worked till quite worn out, and died in harness. 

The Committee offer the following resolution : 

Resolved, That a page in the Journal be set apart as a memorial of 
the Rev, Joseph Wiggins Murph3^ 

Francis W. Hilliard,

Committee. 

The Bishop read the following reply to the greeting sent 
by the Convention to the Council of East Carolina : 

To the Rt. Rev. Joseph B. Cheshire. D.D. 

The Council of East Carolina, and St. Paul's Parish, Edenton, cordially 
reciprocate the loving greetings of North Carolina. 

Alfred A. Watson, 
Frederick N. Skinner, 
Robert B. Drane. 

On motion of the Rev. Robert B. Owens, it was 

Resolved, That the next session of the Convention of the Diocese 
shall be held (D. V.) in St. Stephen's Church, Oxford, on Wednesday, 
June 11, 1903. 

On motion of Mr. Chas. E. Johnson, the Treasurer was 
authorized to pay the travelling expenses of the Clergy 
canonically resident in the Diocese and in attendance at the 
Convention, but not entitled to seats in the same. 

The Tellers of the vote for Deputies to the General Con- 
vention appeared and announced the election of Deputies 
as follows: The Rev. M. M. Marshall, D.D., the Rev. Fran- 
cis J. Murdoch, D.D., the Rev. Julian E. Ingle, the Rev. I. 
McK. Pittenger. D.D., Mr. Richard H. Battle, Mr. John 
Wilkes, Mr. Wm. L. London, and Mr. J. C. Buxton. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1901. 45 

The election of Supplementary Deputies being next in 
order, on motion of Mr. Chas. E. Johnson, the Secretary was 
instructed to cast the vote of the Convention for the four 
persons in each Order who had received the next highest 
number of votes, and this being done, the following persons 
were declared elected : The Kev. E. A. Osborne, the Kev.

The Convention then adjourned. 



After Evening Prayer at 8 o'clock, Mr. John W. Wood, 
Corresponding Secretary of the Board of Missions, made 
an interesting address upon the General Missionary Work 
of the Church. The Bishop then announced that he would 
receive the Special Offering for w^hich he had asked in 
connection with the enrolment made of all baptized per- 
sons in the Church in the Diocese. The offering was 
received bj the Deacons and presented by the Bishop, who 
will apply the proceeds to work within the Diocese. 



THIRD DAY. 

St. Philip's Church, Durham, 

Friday, May 24, 1901. 

Morning Prayer was said at 9 o'clock by the Rev. F. W. 
Hilliard and the Rev. Thos. Lee Trott. 

The Bishop then took the chair, and called the Conven- 
tion to order. The minutes of yesterday were then read 
and approved. 

The Rev. M. M. Marshall, D.D., presented the following 

report : 

The Special Committee to whom was referred that portion of the 
Bishop's Address relating to the death of the Reverend William S. Pet- 
tigrew, beg leave to report as follows : 



46 Journal of Proceedings 

William Shepard Pettigrew was born in Tyrrell County, North Caro- 
lina, October 6, 1818 : was ordained Deacon by Bishop Atkinson in St. 
James' Church, Wilmington. January 31. '869, and Priest in the same 
place by the same Prelate on Trinity Sunday. June 12. 1870. 

On the 27th of July. 1900, after a ministry of thirty-one and a half 
years, this venerable and greatly beloved servant of God. at the ad- 
vanced age of eighty-one years and ten months, was called from labor 
to rest in the blessed Paradise of the Saints. His bodv rests under the 
shadow of the Church of the Good Shepherd. Ridgeway. where he last 
lived and lovingly labored : but his works do follow him. and his influ- 
ence for good abides and will abide to the end. 

Mr. Pettigrew, in every fiber of his being, was the high-toned, cul- 
tured gentleman of the old school : but more, he was the pure, godly, 
devout, self-sacrificing minister of the Gospel who never lost sight of 
his holy calling, and never spared himself in the discharge of its duties. 

It is safe to say that no clergyman ever labored in our midst who 
more fully deserved or enjoj^ed the respect and affection of all sorts 
and conditions of men. In lowliness and meekness he was content to 
dwell among his own people, disdaining all worldly ambitions and 
emoluments, zealous in all good works, following ever in the footsteps 
of that Master who though in the world was not of it. 

In the language of that tender and appreciative tribute of the Bishop 
of the Diocese, to which this Convention has listened. "His gracious 
presence is seen no more among us ; his eloquent voice speaks no more 
from the pulpit : his venerable head bows no more in devout supplica- 
tion for his people. * * * He has gone before, along that path to 
which he so faithfully pointed us. He knew the way ; he had learned 
it from Him who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He had com- 
forted and encouraged many in that way, and he was himself sustained 
and lightened by the Divine presence and blessing." 

" There he some that have left a name behind them, that their praises 
might he reported. * ^ * Their bodies are buried in j^eace, but their 
name liveth for ever more." 

The Committee offer the follow^ing resolution : 

Resolved, That the Secretary be instructed to set apart a page m the 
Journal in memoriam of our departed brother. 

M. M. Marshall, 
Julian E. Ingle, 
John Wilkes, 

Committee. 

On motion of the Eev. F. J. Murdoch, D.D., the memo- 
rial presented by the Committee, with appended resolution, 
was adopted by a rising vote. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1901. 47 

The Rev. E. A. Osborne presented the following 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CANONS. 

The Committee on Canons, to whom was referred a resohition offered 
by the Rev. Dr. Marshall, relating to an amendment of Chapter I, 
Canon XIV. and certain portions of the Bishop's Address, referring to 
the work of Diocesan Missions, respectfully report that having consid- 
ered the same, they recommend the adoption of the following resolu- 
tions : 

Resolved, That Chapter I, Canon XIV, Section 1. be repealed, and 
that the section shall hereafter read as follows : It shall be the duty of 
every Clergyman in the Diocese to take an annual offering from every 
congregation served by him. for each of the objects named below upon 
the day named in connection therewith, or upon some other Sunday in 
the same month, viz : 

Domestic and Foreign Missions First Sunday in January. 

Diocesan Education Fund First Sunday in March. 

Theological Department at Sewanee First Sunday in May. 

Diocesan Relief Fund . . - First Sunday in July. 

American Church Building Fund First Sunday in October, 

The omission of one or more of these offerings shall not be deemed a 
violation of duty in the case of congregations where there is not at 
least a monthly Sunday service. 

Every congregation of this Diocese shall make an offering on Thanks- 
giving Day for the Thompson Orphanage and Training Institution. 

Resolved, That Chapter II. Canons I and II, be repealed, and that the 
following Canons be enacted in place of the same, viz : 

Canon I. 

Section 1. The Missionary Work of the Diocese shall be administered 
in three Missionary Convocations, to be known as the Convocation of 
Raleigh, for work among the wiiite people in the Eastern part of the 
Diocese ; the Convocation of Charlotte, for work among the white peo- 
ple in the Western part of the Diocese ; and the Convocation of the 
Colored People, for work among the colored people of the whole Diocese: 
each Convocation to be under the charge of its own Archdeacon. The 
dividing line between the Convocations of Raleigh and Charlotte shall 
be fixed by the Bishop. 

Sec. 2. There shall be a meeting of each Convocation at least once in 
each year at such time and place as shall be appointed by the Bishop, 
or by the Convocation at the next preceding meeting, and such meet- 
ing or meetings shall be attended by the Clergy residing or officiating, 
and by the Treasurers of all Parishes and Missions situated, within the 



48 Journal of Proceedhigs 

limits of the Convocation. The Bishop, or in his absence, the Arch- 
deacon, shall preside at all meetings of the Convocation. 

Sec. 3. Each Convocation shall have power to appoint all necessary- 
officers, to prescribe their duties, to require from all its members re- 
ports of the work in which they are engaged, to raise funds for Mission- 
ary Work, under the direction of the Bishop and the Archdeacon, and to 
take such action, not inconsistent with the Canons of the Diocese, as 
in the judgment of its members may be deemed expedient for the prose- 
cution of Missionary Work within its limits. 

Canon II. 

Section 1. The ministers and officers of all Missions and of all Par- 
ishes supported wholly or in part by appropriations of Missionary Funds, 
whether Diocesan or General, shall make quarterly reports to the Arch- 
deacons of their respective Convocations as to their work and the con- 
tributions of such Missions and Parishes, in such form as the Bishop 
may prescribe. 

Sec. 2. The Treasurer of each Mission and of each Parish whose min- 
ister receives a missionary stipend, shall report to the Archdeacon of his 
Convocation by the first day of May in each year the amount subscribed 
by such Mission or Parish for the salary of the minister thereof and for 
Diocesan Missions for the current year ; and when the amounts so 
subscribed by any congregation shall appear inadequate, or when no 
report has been made, the Archdeacon ma5% either in person or by 
deputy, make a canvass of such congregation for subscriptions for 
these two objects. 

Resolved, That Chapter I, Canon VIII, Section 1, Paragraph 1, be 
amended so as to read, after the words Executive Missionary Committee, 
as follows : To consist of four Clergymen and five laymen, the Convo- 
cations of Raleigh and Charlotte to be representee! each in both orders ; 
five members (of whom the Bishop may be one) constituting a quorum 
for the transaction of business. 

Resolved, That all Canons or parts of Canons inconsistent with these 

provisions are hereby repealed. 

E. A. Osborne, 

For the Committee. 

On motion of the Eev. E. A. Osborne, the first resolution 
was adopted. 

The Eev. Mr. Osborne offered the second resolution. 

Mr. John Wilkes moved to refer the resolution to the 
Committee for further consideration, but the motion did 
not prevail. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1901. 49 

The second resolution was adopted. 

The third and fourth resolutions were then, on motion of 
the Rev. Mr. Osborne, adopted. 

The Rev. F. W. Hilliard offered the following 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CANONS. 

The Committee on Canons, to whom was referred a proposed amend- 
ment of Cliapter III. Canon VIII, beg leave respectfully to report and 
to recommend the adoption of the following resolution : 

Resolved. That Chapter III, Canon VIII, be amended by the addition 
of the following Section : 

Section 4. Every Mission station not within the bounds of a Parish, 
shall pay all money for its Missionary to the Treasurer of the Diocese 
monthly, and said Treasurer shall pay quarterly to each such Missionary 
all such funds, together with the stipend appropriated by the Missionary 
Committee. 

Mr. Chas. E. Johnson moved to amend by a provision for 
the appointment of a special Treasurer in each Convocation. 

On moti )n of Mr. Wm. L. London, the resolution was 
referred to the Committee on Canons with instructions to 
report to the next Annual Convention. 

The Rev. Dr. Pittenger presented the following report : 

The Special Committee to whom was referred the report of the Trus- 
tees of St. Mary's School, submit the following report : 

We are moved, first of all, to express the gratification with which 
the Convention, as well as all the friends and patrons of St. Mary's, 
have heard of the great success which has thus far attended the efforts 
of the Trustees to secure to the Church in the future this most valua- 
ble institution of learning. 

The recent rapid and sudden growth, while imposing upon the Trus- 
tees a difficult and urgent problem, affords at the same time a most 
favorable and tangible evidence of success. 

As to the questions which concern the internal management of the 
School, in view of the character of the work done and the evident suc- 
cess of the present administration, we feel that these can safely be en- 
trusted in the future to the same hands which have so safely guided the 
course of the institution thus far. 

While the friends of St. Mary's may be somewhat surprised and dis- 
appointed to learn that so small an amount has been paid upon the 
debt of the Corporation within the past year, yet we feel that the 
4 



50 Journal of Proceedings 

emergency that was thrust upon the management by the suddenly in- 
creased demands of the School, called for extraordinary measures, and 
we are not surprised that the Trustees felt themselves in the circum- 
stances justified in providing for these demands in the manner indicated 

in their report. 

We can most heartily commend the institution and the efforts of 

those who are engaged in the work of establishing it upon a permanent 

basis that will place its future beyond any possibility of doubt, and the 

work of those to whom have been entrusted the administration of its 

internal affairs, to the continued confidence and support of the people 

of the Carolinas. 

The Committee will venture to suggest to the Trustees the propriety 
of recovering to the purchase fund as rapidly as possible all profits that 
may be derived from the increased facilities supplied to the School by 
the expenditure of the funds employed by them for that purpose. 

The Committee would further suggest the advisability of employing 
a financial agent who shall continue the work of securing the means of 
cancelling the indebtedness which still rests upon the Corporation. 

And we urge upon the Church people of the Carolinas the necessity 
of giving their money as liberally as possible for the consummation of 
this most important and desirable end. 

I. MCK. PiTTEXGER. 

Chairman. 

On motion of the Kev. Dr. Fittenger, the report was 
adopted. 

The Kev. S. Paxson Walters presented the following 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OX THE STATE OF THE CHURCH. 

The Committee on the State of the Church labor under the old diffi- 
culty of not having full returns from all the Parishes and Missions, a 
number not having presented any report. It is impossible for your 
Committee to make an accurate report unless they have data from which 
to compile and present to the Convention. The attention of the 
Clergy is called to this omission, and an earnest appeal is made to them 
to be more prompt in sending in their Parochial Reports in order that 
the Committee in its report may more accurately show the true con- 
dition of the Church. The value of any statistical report depends en- 
tirely on its accurately giving all the information reasonably demanded. 
During the past Convention year there is much that the Church in this 
Diocese has to be thankful for. The devoted labors of our energetic 
Bishop have been supplemented by his faithful Clergy and loyal laity. 
We have the right to take courage and look forward to the time when 
the growth shall be commensurate with the blessings which the Church 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 51 

brings to all conditions of men. We note an increase in offerings for 
all Church purposes of $7,376. Increase in insurance carried $6,500. 
Decrease of indebtedness $4,631. Increase of baptized persons reported 
in the Diocese 1,026. We think this increase has come from the enroll- 
ment called for by the Bishop's Twentieth Century Appeal. 

Increase in the number of families, 52. Increase in Parish School 
Scholars, 231. Increase in Industrial School Scholars, 70. 

The report from all tlie institutions under the fostering care of the 
Church is encouraging. 

There is no work that appeals more to her members than that of St. 
Mary's School. The report of the Trustees gives evidence of a wise and 
prudent administration, and an upward and onward movement in all 
directions. Through the energetic work of the Rev. Mr. Pruden, 
Financial Agent, a large sum of money has been raised and pledged, 
mainly to be applied to liquidating the debt created by the purchase of 
the property. As the school of the Carolina Dioceses, entrenched in 
the affections of the people, we may feel assured that in the near future 
its bright and hopeful prospects will be a source of joy and pride to all 
Carolinians. Next perhaps to St. Mary's, the Thompson Orphanage 
appeals to the sympathy and charity of our people. The report of the 
Board of Managers and that of the Superintendent present an encour- 
aging outlook for the Orplianage. We note with pleasure the com. 
mencement of an endowment fund of over two thousand dollars, and 
we trust that in a reasonable time the Orphanage may be endowed with 
generous gifts, and become a greater blessing to the Church and its 
orphan children. 

We commend the zeal and earnestness of the Superintendent, and 
trust that his devotion may be rewarded by an ever-increasing interest 
in his good work on the part of our people. The Church should, if pos- 
sible, render some assistance to the Superintendent in editing the 
Messenger of Hope, its official organ. It is too much to suppose that 
the Superintendent has time from other duties to devote to the editing 
of the paper. An editor who could devote more time is needed to 
make the paper what the Superintendent and the Church desire it 
should be, not only the official organ, but the exponent of Cliurch 
thought in the Diocese. We commend this matter most earnestly to 
the attention of the Convention. 

From St. Augustine the work is all of progress. The pupils are not 
only taught in the scholastic departments of the School, but are being 
trained as skilled workmen in the mechanical departments, and the 
girls are taught cooking and sewing. Throughout the entire course 
the conservative influence of the Church Service is brought to bear 
upon the student. The whole aim of St. Augustine's is to render its 
pupils useful men and women in their life-work, that their influence 
may count for good with the colored race. The Church can not neglect 



52 Journal of Proceedings 

its dutj^ in the uplifting of these people, and not suffer from the neg- 
lect. We commend the faithful work being done at St. Augustine's 
School to the generosit}^ of those who are blessed with wealth. 

The reports from St. Peter's Hospital, Charlotte, and that of the Good 
Samaritan for colored people show increasing good done for humanity. 
We commend these noble charities : we are glad to note they are being 
cared for and sustained. 

The Woman's Auxiliary has done a good work the past year. No 
words can adequately convey the help and assistance, religious and 
financial, given to the Church by the Woman's Auxiliary. These devo- 
ted women are the silver lining to the clouds that at times darken the 
fair work of the Church. 

The Junior Auxiliary reports are most encouraging, and it is grati- 
fying to note that the children of the Church are being trained to be- 
come effective missionary' workers in the extension of the Kingdom of 
Christ. 

And last and most important, the missionary work of the Church in 
the Diocese demands attention. Are our Convocations able to do the 
work that calls for immediate attention ? Do we not need some more 
active and closer touch with the people in our missionary field? Your 
Committee urgently place the importance of the missionary work of 
the Diocese before you, and urge most earnestly that some more effect- 
ive method may be found and applied for the purpose of carrying the 
Church into the missionary fields of the Diocese. We need a revival 
of interest, more enthusiasm, and a deeper sense of duty, and a more 
generous support to this the imperative work of the Church. 

The interesting reports of the Archdeacons in charge of the missionary 
work, submitted to the Convention and referred to your Committee, 
give evidence of faithful service done, growth in the missionary field, 
and the necessity, if we are to take advantage of our opportunities, of 
some action to enable this work to be carried forward as it should be. 
and thus redound in a greater and higher degree to the glory of God , 
the extension of His Kingdom and the good of His people. 
Respectfully submitted, 

S. Paxson Watters, 
Chairman. 

On motion of the Kev. Mr. Watters, the report was 
adopted. 

The Kev. Mr. Watters presented the following report : 

The Diocesan Association of the Clergymen's Retiring Fund Society 
has continued its work during the past year with gratifying results. 
Several new names have been added to the roll of membership, and 
while two of our annuitants have been removed by death, it is expected 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 53 

that the membership of five of our members will matm-e in November 
next, when they will receive their first annual pension. One of the 
clerical members of the Societ}^ has removed from the Diocese, and two 
have died, but the number remaining is still twenty-four— about half 
the whole number of our Clergy. 

Contributions during the year from fourteen congregations and sun- 
dry individuals, with a small sum for interest on deposits in the Sav- 
ings Bank, amount to $200.79. The balance, including $36.24 in 
hand at the close of last report, is 864.35. which will be payable before 
November 1, for maturing certain memberships. 

These sums do not include the dues of five members of the Society 
which are paid by them directly to the Treasurer, Mr. Elihu Chauncey. 

The Association invites the cooperation of the Churchmen and Church 
women of the Diocese in maintaining, by the annual contributions of 
sums of any amount, the membership of all the Clergy in the Society, 
which provides an annual pension for them upon their attainment of 
sixty years of age 

Respectfully submitted, S. Paxson Watters, 

For the Executive Committee. 

On motion of Mr. John Wilkes, the Secretary was auth- 
orized to have printed the usual number of copies of the 
Journal of the Convention, and also a new edition of the 
Canons of the Diocese. 

On motion of Mr. E. H. Battle it was 

Resolved, That the thanks of the Convention are hereby tendered to 
the Rector and congregation of St. Philip's Church, and to the citizens 
of Durham generally, for their generous hospitality in the entertain- 
ment of the members of the Convention and of the visitors in attend- 
ance on its sessions. 

On motion of Mr. Battle the thanks of the Convention 
were also presented to the Woman's Auxiliar\^ for the kind

ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP. 



Brcthreu of the CleKJU and Laiiij: 

As wo met last year in one of onr oldest Parishes, so this 
vear we are met in one of onr newest. There is a heanty 
and a va'lne in that which is old, which enshrines and peqDet- 
nates memories and sentiments of the past, and inspires ns 
to emnlate the virtnes and to continne tlie good works of onr 
fathers. Bnt there is valhe, and not valne only bnt its proper 
o-race and hdanty also, in that which is new, in the hope and 
faith which ]msh forward to new achievement, and reach after 
and rise to higher and l:>etter things as time g-oes on. The 
C^Omi-ch of Go'd is bottomed on the old, Imt her look is fonvard, 
and her missii)n shall be accomplished only when old things 
are passed away and all things are become new. 

1 mav lie pardoned for a personal allnsion in this connec- 
tion. St. Philip's Chnrch, Dnrham, is specially dear to me. 
This was the scene of my first efforts for the extension of the 
Ohnrch. T am most thankfnl to see in this congregation and 
among the mend>ers of this ( onvention a few of the faces 
which welcomed me when 1 came here a Deacon of a month 
old, in :\rav, ISTS. We had no chnrch here and no congTCga- 
rion. A few faithful sonls had looked and longed for the 
services and ministrations of the Chnrch, and we undertook 
what seenied a very ti-emendons task. This church building 
and this congiegation of St. Philip's wias the outcome of our 
lalwrs under the blessing of God. T suppose a man may be 
])ennitted to feel a joy in the work which he has l)een enabled 
to do. And it is an a'dded joy to realize that the chnrch which 
was s(T much too large for the congTcgation for which it was 
"huilt, is become so inadequate for the congi-egation now over- 
crowding it. 

Since' our last me(^ting two of our brethrc^i. of thc^ Clergy 
have been f-alk-d to rest from their labors. July 'l' . 1^00, 



56 Address of the Bishop. 

the Rev. William Shepard Pettigrew departed this life in the 
i-ectory of the Church of the Good S^liepherd, Ridgeway, of 
which Parish he had been Rector for more than twenty-two 
years. Mr. Pettigrew bore a name most honorably associated 
with the history of the Chnrch in xsTorth Carolina. His 
grandfather, the Rev. Charles Pettigi'ew, having been for a 
time master of the old Edenton Academy, was, just before 
the breaking out of the Revolutionary War, ordained to the 
ministry of the Church by the Bishop of London, the last 
Clergyman sent by him to this province. After twenty years 
of faithful ser\dce he was eleeted Bishop of !N^orth Carolina 
by a Convention which met in Tarborough in May, 1794. 
Though circumstances prevented his consecration, he con- 
tinued his services until his death in 1807. He left one child, 
the late Hon. Ebenezer PettigTcw, the father of our deceased 
brother. Mr. Pettigrew did not enter the ministry until he 
was in his fifty-firsit year. At that time he had already lived 
a life beyond the average length, and had been a man of the 
first distinction in his section, having served with ability and 
credit in the Convention of 1861, and enjoying in an uncom- 
mon degree the affection and respect of a wide circle of 
friends. He had been a man of considerable wealth, and 
enjoyed the deserved reputation of being a conscientious mas- 
ter to his large number of slaves, whom he treated with the 
utmost humanity, and for whose Christian nurture he was 
most solicitous. From his vouth he was a man of sinonilar 
purity and elevation of character, and a most devout and 
consistent Christian. Being unmarried and by the results 
of the war relieved of the responsibilities and burdens of tem- 
poral affairs, he was, by the influence of Bishop Atkinson, 
led to devote himself to the work of the ministry. In that 
work he labored faithfully and devotedly until his death. 
Xo one who knew him could fail to recognize the noble and 
beautiful qualities of his personal character, or doubt his abso- 
lute devotion to the work of his Master. He was a fine typ(? 
of much that was best in the life of our country before the 
changes wrought by the war between the States. He entered 
the ministry after his charaoter, convictions and habits were 
too far developed to undergo much change ; but there was no 
more faithful and unsparing laborer than lie in the ranks of 
our Clergy, no more indefatigable preacher, no one who 
adorned tlie doctrine of God our Saviour bv a life of greater

purity, unselfishness, patience, gentleness and godly sincerity 
than William Shepard Pettigrefw. 

October 17, 1900, the Rev. Joseph Wiggins Murphy, since 
1892 a resident of Washington City, though si ill canonically 
connected with this Uiocese, was called from this life to a bet- 
ter. The association of his name with that of Mr. Pettigrew 
in this notice of their death, reminds us that at one time Mr. 
Pettigrew was a member of the Parish of St. David's, of 
which Mr. ^Murphy was rector. He was a native of Ireland, 
but came to this country with his father when quite young. 
His father, Mr. Jeremiah Murphy, was a school teacher^ and 
tauo^ht in a number of places in the region of the Catawba 
and Yadkin rivers. He was one of the most faithful and use- 
ful laymen we have ever had. He was chiefly instrumental 
in the first establisihment of the Church in Lincolnton, in 
Charlotte, in Lexington, and perhaps in other places. Three 
of his sons received Holy Orders, and all were faithful and 
useful m^en. His son Joseph, of whom we now speak, began 
his preparation for the ministry at the old Yalle Crucis Mis- 
sion. After his ordination he served in various parts of this 
Diocese until 1870, when he left it, and, except for a short 
period of ser^'ice at Elizabeth City, was absent until 1881, 
when he returned to become rector of St. Matthew's Church, 
Hillsboro, which he served faithfully and effectively until 
totally disabled for pastoral work. During the war between 
the States he served efficiently as a Chaplain in the Confeder- 
ate army. The Church in North Carolina has no more loyal, 
loving, faithful, diligent, godly priest and pastor than he 
was throughout his whole course. The last years of his life 
were tried by pain, weakness, narrow and uncertain means 
of support and domestic bereavement. But all trials only 
showed more plainly in him the reality of Christian faith, 
patience and love. Whenever physically able it was his joy 
to minister in the pulpit and at the altar. Just before his 
death he sent an offering out of his scanty means to our Dio- 
cesan Missions, and after his death his daughter, the loving 
companion of his last years, found among hi-^ papers one in 
which he had carefully noted down all his minisiterial acts 
since May 1, 1900, with a direction endorsed upon it that it 
was to be sent to the Bishop after his death as his final report. 
That faithfulness to duty in what some count a little thing, 
marks the man. He rests in peace, and leaves to his children 
the priceless heritage of a Good I^ame.

Wirliniu the limits of the Diocese I have during the same 
period officiated live times, pireached once, delivered three 
addresses and baptized one infant. I was absent from the Dio- 
cese from July 23d to August 17th, during the first ten days 
in attendance upon the annual Commencement and meeting of 
the Bo'ard of Trustees of the University of the South, at Se- 
wanee, and the last two weeks enjoying the delightful re-crea- 
tion of a brief trip through the mountains of Mitchell, Wa- 
tauga and Ashe counties, revisiting the scenes of former mis- 
sionary experiences, and renewing the friend S'hips of those 
days. September 27th I was in Lincolnton for a few hours 
on important business for St. Mary's School, and October 1st 
and 2d in Wilmington on still more important matters of the 
School. January 15th and IGth were occupied in a trip to 
Washington City attending a meeting of the Commission on 
Work Among the Colored People ; and from February 4th to 
February 12th I was absent for the purpose of attending a 
protracted session of the Joint Commission on Amendments 
to the Canons of the General Convention. 

The toifcal of my seiwices and ministrations during the year 
is as follows: Services, 219; sermons, 142; addresses, 26; 
administrations of the Holy Communion, 77 ; confirmations, 
294; baptisms, 12; miarriages, 1; funerals, 2; chui-ches con- 
se<?rat.ed, 5. These \vere all within the Dioce«e; and to them 
should be added those services mentioned above performed 
during^ mv absence in other Dioceses. 



68 Address of the Bishop. 

During the year I have made a more tiliorough and complete 
visitation of the Diocese than I had ever been able to accom- 
plish before. I visited every Parish and organized Mission 
in the Diocese without a single exception. ^lany of them 
I \'isited more than once. In some twenty-five churches and 
chapels I officiated from twice to six or eight times. Every 
imorganized Mission or point where w^e have a church build- 
ing or regular services I visited ait least once, with the excep- 
tion of Cuningham's Chapel ; St. Mark's Chapel, -Gulf ; Mon- 
cure; Xoise; St. John's, Salisbury; Smithfield, Tillery, and 
the Chapel of the colored Mission at Statesville. Of these 
we really have no congTegation and maintain no services at 
Gulf and Moncure. I was providentially hindered from 
keeping appointments which I had made for Tillery, Cun- 
ingham's and the colored chapel at Statesville; and there 
seemed no special occasion for visiting the remaining ones 
in vieW' of the mo-re urgenit demand for services at other points 
'which seemed more im}x>rtant. The list of sendees at the 
begimiing of the Address will also show that I held &er\dces 
in a number of places not included in tlie list of our Parishes 
and Missions. The most important of these places are Hunts- 
ville, Yadkin County, and the town of Albenrarle, in both of 
which we have a number of faithful people, for whom I am 
hoping in the near future to make some regular provision, 
and who are ready to co-operate to the utmost of their power 
in the permanent establishment of the ministrations of the 
Church in those places. It may also be mentioned that new 
chapels have been built^ — one at Cooleemee Factory, in Davie 
County, and one in the northem part of Rowan County, 
chiefly by the efforts of the Rev. Dr. Murdoch. 

]May 27, 1900, upon the petition of a number of persons 
residing in the vicinity of a post-office called Euto, in Union 
County, I organized the ^lission of ''St. Timothy's Church, 
Euio," with John S. Smith, Warden ; Davidson Xance, Treas- 
urer ; and John Lemuel Smith, Clerk. 

Xovem'ber 9, 1900, upon the petition of the members of the 
Mission heretofore known as the ''Charpel of the Holy Cross, 
Littleton," I reorganized that congregation under the name of 
''St. Allans Church, Littleton," appointing as officers thereof 
Woodson L. Powell, Warden; Alexander Weddell Fetter, 
Treasurer ; and Littleberry Vinson, Clerk. 

Our losses from the ranks of the Clergy have been greater 
during the past year than for any previous year during my 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1901. 69 

Episcopate. Besides the two already mentioned, taken to 
their rest after long and faithful service, I have transferred 
by lerters disniissory 'the followino;: 

The Rev. William Walker Priest. June 2. to Vermont. 
The Rev. Charles L. Hoffman. Priest, September 1. to Mississippi. 
The Rev. Henry C. F^arkman. Priest. December 1. to Easton. 
The Rev. Henry Hobart Barber. Priest. February T, to Pittsburgh. 
The Rev. Frank ecil Bayliss, Priest. February 38. to Bath and Wells, 
England. 
The Rev. Horace Weeks Jones, Priest. April 15. to Alabama. 
The Rev. James Daniel Miller, Priest, April 30, to Nebraska. 
The Rev. William B. Perry. Deacon. October 1, to Virginia. 

We have gained the following: 

The Rev. John Linker Saunders, Deacon. June 10. by Ordination. 
The Rev. Alban Greaves, Priest. June 1, from East Carolina. 
The Rev H-rris Mallinckrodt. Priest. December 1. from Maryland. 
The Rev. Francis Joyner. Priest. April 1. from East Carolina. 
The Rev. Sanders Richard.son Guiguard. Priest. April 15. from South 
Carolina. 

Our numbers, therefore, stood May 1st, 1900, five less than 
last year, namely: One Bishop, thirty-six Priests, and eight 
Deacons ; forty-five in all. Since May 1st I have received 
and accepted lerters disuiissoTy from the Bishop of Florida in 
favor of the Rev. Clarence Cix>ft Leman, who has accepted 
the rectorship of St. Peter's Church, Charlotte, and has en- 
tered upon his duties. I am also informed that the Pev. 
George Meredith Tolson, of Hertford, East C'arolina, has 
accepted a call to the rectorship of Calvary Church, Wades- 
boro, to take effect July 1st. 

The candidates for Priest's Orders are: the Rev. Royal G. 
Shannonhouse, Deacon; Thaddeus Ainsley Cheatham, Fran- 
cis Moore Osborne and Richard Louis Bame. 

The Postulants are: Oliver Stancill, Homer Leach Lloover, 
William EdWard Callender, Lame^s Hollis Clrosby, Hugh 
Preston Eanes and William Eanes. 

The fields of labor of the Clergy remain as at our last meet- 
ing, with the following changes : 

As announced at the last Convention, the Rev. Edwin A. 
Osborne was by the Bishop appointed Archdeacon of the 
Diocese, and as such has been most laborious and zealous in 



70 Address of the Bishop. 

his work under mv direction, performing also tdie duties of 
Secretary of the Executive Mission^arv^ Committee. 

The Re\\ John Linker Saunders, ordained Deacon Trinity 
Sunday last, has been serving in St. Matthews' and St. Judes' 
Churches in Rowan County under the Rev. Dr. Murdoch. 

The Rev. Harris Mallinckrodt became rector of St. Paul's 
Church, Winston, upon his transfer to this Diocese. 

The Rev. Francis Jo'jmer resides at. Littleton, and has 
under his chlai'ge St. Alban's Church, Littleton, and also the 
churches at Ridgeway and at Middleburg, and St. Luke's, 
Gaston. 

The Rev. Sanders Richardson Guignard is rector of St. 
Andrews' Church, Greensboro, and has charge of the Memo- 
rial Chapel of St. Mary's, Greensboro. 

The Rev. Thomas Bell in April last removed from Wilson, 
having resigned the rectorship of St. Timothy's Church, and 
has become rector of St. Barnabas' Church, Greensboro, hav- 
ing charge also of St. Cuthbert's Chapel, Proximity. 

The Rev. Alban Greaves is rector of St. Paul's Church, 
Louisburg, and of St. J'ames' Church, Ivittrell, and is serv- 
ing most faithfully and acceptably in both places. 

In July last the Rev. Gaston Battle, Deacon, gave up the 
charge of St. John's Church, Battleboro, and since that time 
has not been officiating. St. John's Church, Battleboro, I 
placed temporarily under the charge of the Rev. Charles Fet- 
ter, of Rocky Mount. 

In February last I remo^x^ed the Rev. Edward P. Green 
from the charge of All Souls' Church, Ansonville. 

I have directed the Rev. Royal G. Shannoiihouse, Deacon, 
to take charge of the work at St. Mark's Church, Mecklen- 
burg County, under the direction of Archdeacon Osborne, in 
place of St. Philip's Church, Mocksville, beginning May 1st, 
1901. St. Philip's, Mocksville, remains at present unpro- 
vided for. 

It is in my heart to pav a deserved tribute of praise to the 
faithful and Moved brethren who, after laboring for years 
among us have, for one cause and another, felt that duty 
called them elsewhere. Of the eight w^hom we have lost by 
removal, every one was a inan of real worth and of solid value 
in the work of the ministry. If I do not speak more par- 
ticularly it is only because the number makes it impracticable 
for me to speak adequately of all of them ; and should I partic- 
ularize the excellence of one or two, I fear my personal affec- 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 71 

tion might give an appearance of partial judgment which I 
wonlcl not willingly be gnilty of. I will only say that, taken 
as a whole or taken severally, they are a great loss to us and a 
great gain to those parts of the Church which now enjoy the 
benefit of their faithful services. 

But, while regretting the absence of those brethren whom 
we had come to value and love in the past, I say with equal 
truth and sincerity that at this moment the work of the 
Church in ]^orth Carolina is in a condition which I seemed 
hardly able to hope for a few mionths ago, when I was con- 
fronted with such a list of removals. Already most of the 
vacancies have been filled, and so filled as to give assurance 
that the work will go on without diminution of faith and zeal, 
And we have good reason to hope that the few remiaining 
places now unoccupied will soon be suitably supplied with 
able and godly ministers. I believe there are not many Dio- 
ceses where the ranks of the laborers have fewer vacancies^ or 
where a more sincere confidence and aifection exists between 
pastors and people. For this I feel most devoutly thankful 
and pray God that it nuay long continue to be true of our 
Clergy and people. 

While on this subject it may not be amiss to add a few^ words 
in regard to the part which the Bishop should have in the 
appointment of minisiters to vacant churches. As I under- 
stand the Canons, all work oaitside the limits of Parishes in 
union with the Convention, is under the Bishop, w^ho has 
the sole right of appointing and removing the Clergy as he 
shall judge best for the interests of the Church. Where a 
Parish is organized under our Canons and admitted into 
union with the Convention, the right of choosing a rector is 
in the Yestry of the Parish and the Bishop has no voice 
whatever in choosing the minister or in continuing or termi- 
nating his rectorship, except the power of refusing, for suffi- 
cient reasons, to accept letters dismissory from another Dio- 
cese, or of proceeding judicially against a minister for breach 
of the Canons or of his ordination vows. These two cases 
are plain, and there is no difficulty in understanding either 
case. 

It often happens, hov\^ever, that a Parish with the jiower of 
electing its own rector, is unable to bear the burden of his 
support, and must depend upon being assisteri therein by an 
appropriation from our Diocestan Missioamrs' Funds, or by 
having one or more Mission congregations put under the 
charge of the rector, in order that the contributions of these 



72 Address of the Bishop. 

congregations may supplement the salary paid by the Parish. 
In this ease I venture to think that the Vestry should be will- 
ing to be advised by the Bishop, and should not feel that they 
can properly proceed to the choice of a rector for themselves 
until an understanding has been reached and the Bishop has 
agreed upon tlie man to be elected. 

ST. mart's school. 

In taking a view of tlie general affairs of the Diocese we 
naturally begin with its institutions. Of these the first in 
importance, and that which we have had especially upon our 
minds for the last few years, is St Clary's School. We of the 
Diocese of ^orth Carolina took up the burden of responsibil- 
ity alone in 1897. Now we have the happiness of seeing all 
the Bishops in the C'arolinas with the Clergy and Conventions 
joined with us in the work. The year just passed has for 
those in charge of the School been a year of labor and of anxi- 
ety, but also a year of much growth, progress and bright 
promise for the futiire. As President of the Board of Trus- 
tees, I have the duty of laying before this Convention the 
Annual Beport required by our charter to be made to the Con- 
ventions associated in its government. I will not at this time, 
therefore, go into the details of the School's affairs. But look- 
ing at the subject from the standpoint of our Diocesan inter- 
ests, I wish in the first place to congratulate you upon the 
very marked degree of success which has attended our labors in 
this line. The debt of $50,000, which many thought too great 
a burden for us to undertake, has been reduced to $27,000, 
with something over $10,000 in notes and subscriptions on 
hand toward its further reduction ; while not much less than 
$10,000 has been spent in adding to the permanent value of 
the property and in increasing its usefulness for the purposes 
of the School ; and while the number of boarding pupils has 
increased about threefold. This is most gratifying and en- 
couraging and confirms the faith of its friends in the future of 
this nohle School. But at the same time this success— and it 
is a very great and unquestionable success — this very success 
brings us face to face with the necessity of doing very much 
more than we have yet done. We started out to pay off the 
debt; we must keep on until that end has been attained. But 
we must do moTe. We must enlarge our facilities for carry- 
ing on and for developing the School. At this moment it is 



Diocese of North Caroliva, 1901. 73 

a very serious question how we are to accommodate the pupils 
who will apply for admission next September. We have 
every reason to anticip'ate a material increase in the number 
of applicants. We must provide for them. Xot only so, 
but 'these greater numbers and the higher aims which we have 
set before^ us for the developmenit of the School denrand in- 
creased facilities for instruction in every direction. We 
could witih advantage spend ten, fifteen, twenty tho'usand dol- 
lars at this very time in adding to our facilities for doing the 
great work which we have undertakeu. ]\Iay God put it into 
the hearts of some of our good people to come forward and 
provide the means of making this School all that it has the op- 
portunity of becoming. And among other things St. Mary's 
needs an endowment. It is the hope of the Trustees to keep 
the cliarges at St. Mary's down to such a sum that as large a 
oroportion of our people as possible may enjoy its benefits, 
but even so, there are many cases continually appealing to 
them, wdiere they onght to be able to afford special opportu- 
nities to poor and worthy girls. To this end we must have 
scholarships endowed. A faithful layman of Raleigh has 
lately provided in his will that some years hence such a schol- 
arship ni'ay be founded, in addition to the two already estab- 
lished by this Diocese and the one by Easit Carolina. May 
his good example encourage others to do the like ! 

THE TKOMPSOX ORPHAXACtE. 

Under the Rev. Walter J. Smith, Superintendent, this 
institution continues its beneficent work. Thirty children 
from this Diocese, sixteen from East Carolina, and thirteen 
from Asheville, make up the total of fifty-nine inmates re- 
ported to the Bo'ard of Managers at its annual meeting last 
month. These children are well cared for, well taught, and 
in the main promise to become good and useful men and 
women. It is now fourteen years since it was opened, and it 
is gratifying to learn that, tested by its fruits, it justifies the 
efforts which have been made for its establishment and con- 
tinuance. Some who have been trained there have disap- 
pointed the hopes of their friends, but in a very large propor- 
tion of cases the lives and characters of those sent out from 
its walls have been and are such as to reflect honor upon this 
institution. One most pleasing feature of the work is that all 
our ^or\\\ Carolina Churchmen are united in its support and 



74 Address of the Bishop. 

nianagemen't. Children from East Carolina and from Ashe- 
ville are among its inmates, the Clergy and laity both unite 
with members of this Diocese in the management, and Chnrch- 
men from all parts of the State respond most promptly and 
cordially to all demands for help. A small beginning has 
been made towards an endowment, and the rapid gi'owth and 
deyelopment of the city of Charlotte promises in the near 
future to add yery greatly to the yalue of the property. 

The Reporl: of the Treasurer of the Diocese, which is in the 
hands of the members of the Convention, is on the whole 
most gratifying. The two chief funds show an unexpectedly 
large income. While fully appreciating the adyantage of 
this state of things, it is not my purpose to dwell upon this 
P'art of the report. Rather I call your attention to those 
funds which do not make so' favorable a showing. Our Can- 
ons require the Clergy of the Diocese to take annual offerings 
in the churches for the Diocesan Relief Fund, for the Dioce- 
san Education Fund and for the American Church Building 
Fund Commis'sion. There are in addition to these one or 
two offerings recommended to the Clergy by standing resolu- 
tions of the Convention. The reports of the Treasurer for 
some years past disclose the fact that verj^ few of the Clergy 
take up these offerings, and those who do' obey the Canon seem 
to have very little success in interesting their people in these 
objects of their boainty. Xow in the first place I msh to say 
to my brethren of the Clergy that I am in urgent need of their 
help in the matter of these very funds, and especially I com- 
mend to their interest the Education Fund. During the past 
year I have had to make personal solicitations in different 
parts of the Diocese in order to raise the money I was ol>liged 
to have to help several deserving young men who are prepar- 
ing for the ministry. I am willing to do this in an emer- 
gency, but I am sure you do not wish to reduce me to the 
necessity of doing this every year. And should any case of 
necessity arise for relieving the necessities of our old Clergy, 
the amount contributed annually to the Relief Fund is entirely 
inadequate to give any effectual help even in a single case of a 
superannuated Clergyman. I most earnesitly ask their aitten- 
tion to this matter. 

But to the Convention I would suggest the propriety of con- 
sidering the whole question of these Canonical offerings and 
other offerings recommended by the Convention to the Clergy, 
and the appointment of a particular Sunday for each, so that 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1901. 75 

the recurrence of the appointed day might remind Priest and 
people alike of the object for which the Church that day asks 
their oiferings. I would further most eiarnesitly impress upon 
both Clergy and people the absolute importance of being regu- 
lar and methodical in the co'lleetion and remittance of all 
their dues to the Church. 

One thino- more in this connecition. Our General Conven- 
tion meets in San Francisco the first Wednesday in October 
next, ^lost important matters are to come before it, and this 
Diocese should be ably represented, as it usually has been, in 
the great councils of the Church. Our Canons provide that the 
TreLurer shall pay the necessary expenses of the Clerical 
delegates attending the General Convention. Foniierly the 
C*anons directed a fixed sum to be paid to each Clerical Dep- 
uty. I suggest for the consideration of the Convention in the 
present casT whether the Diocese is prepared to undertake the 
expense of four Clerical Deputies attending a two or three 
weeks' session of the General Convention at San Francisco. 
AYe are allowed to send not more than four Dei>uties. We 
mav elect, if we please, only two, or one, or we may change the 
Canon and provide that a specified smn be paid each Clerical 
Deputy towards his expenses. I make no recommendrilion. 
I simiply bring the m-atter before this Convention that it may 
receive due consideration. 

DTOCESAX :\[I8SlOXS. 

The offerings for this object during the year have not been 
so large as we\ad hoped, but they have met our expenditures 
and have paid off a considerable part of the balance of indebt- 
edness brought over froan the year before. I think we may 
say the offerings have been reasonably satisfactory. There 
is! however, a feeling pretty general among us that we are 
not doing all the work which should be done. The appoint- 
ment of an Archdeacon has proved a stimulus to the work of 
Diocesan Missions, so far as the Archdeacon has been able to 
cover the ground. But he has been almost wholly confined to 
the Western half of the Diocese. In that quarter his work 
has been most effective. I have found him a gTeat help, and 
I belicA-e that his work for the coming year is likely to be still 
more valuable. This has suggested the possible advantage of 
appointing another Archdeacon for the Eastern half of the 
Diocese, and reorganizing our Missionary work under three 



76 Address of the Bishoj). 

Archdeacons instead o-f having four Convocations as hereto- 
fore. We have already an Archdeacon over the Colored 
work. All the work of Missions among white people being put 
under two Archdeacons might serve to bring the whole into a 
more effective condition. The Convocations are admittedly 
failures as ^Missionary agencies. The proposition will be 
made in this Convention, I am infomied, to organize the ]Mis- 
sionary work of the Diocese under three Archdeacons, as 
above indicated, and to pat the duty and responsibility of 
attending to it upon the several Archdeaconries under the di- 
rection of the Bishop and the respective Archdeacons. I give 
no opinion on the point, but refer it to the cousideration of the 
Convention. The plan has some features which couimend it. 

THE WOMxVx's AUXILIAEY AND LAY AGEA^CIES. 

I must mention, if only briefly, the work of the Woman's 
Auxiliary, the Brotherhood of St. Andrew, and the Daugh- 
ters of the King. The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is here 
to speak for itself — so is the Woman's Auxiliary, ^ot the 
least interesting or important features of our annual Conven- 
tions are the meetings and proceedings of these two valuable 
organizations of lay workers. It was thought at one time 
that an annual meeting of the Daughters of the King might 
also be held in connection with the Diocesan Convention. 
This, however, has proved to be impracticable. There is not 
time for so much in the three days of Convention. 1 have 
recently been in conference with the Diocesan Secretary of 
this Society, and suggested to her tbat it might be advis'able 
to arrange au annual meeting of all the Chapters in ^NTorth 
Carolina and in East Carolinia together some day early in 
June, meeting in some co'uvenient town, one year in this 
Diocese and the next in East Carolina. This proposition is 
now under consideration, and its adoption nuay prove a stimu- 
lus and encouragement to the faithful women engaged in 
this good work. 

To the women of the Auxiliary I can only say what I have 
so often said before — ^that their assistance has become so very 
effective in th^ missionary work that no Bishop can now un- 
derstand how the Church ever could have gotten on without 
it. I hope always to find a branch in every Parish and Mis- 
sion of the Diocese. At the present time the most important 
matter before them is the ''IJxited Offerixg'' to be made 
at the General Convention next October. I trust tliat our 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 77 

Diocesan Branch may be well represented both by the attend- 
ance of delegates and the generous offering which they shall 
make toward 'the work of our ^Missionary Bishops during the 
next three years. 

THE TWEXTlETil CEXTUKY EXKOEMEXT AXD UFFERIXG FOR 
D10CE8AX MISSIONS. 

In Epiphiany season last. I sent out to all the Clergy of the 
Diocese a request that they would send me at their earliest 
convenience complete lis'ts of all the baptized members of the 
Church witJiin their several cures, or a.ttaohed to their con- 
gregations, in order that I might make a record for preserva- 
tion among the archives of the Diocese of all members of the 
(Church in this Diocese this opening year of the Twentieth 
('enitury. Such a list, if measurably full and accurate, will 
increase in interest and value as the yeiars gO' by. Since the 
Canons require every Clergyman to keep such a list of his 
people, it should not be 'a very difficult or tedious matter to 
make a general list of the whole Diocese. And besides the 
future interest and value of such a record, to which [ have 
alluded, I felt that there would be even a greater present 
utility in the very process of making out the local lists, and 
then coanbining them in a Diocesan list, by emphasizing" both 
to the Clergy and the people the personal, individual rela- 
tionship and responsibilrty involved in the work of the min- 
istry for the people. Clergy and people have responded to 
this appeal in a manner which has convinced me that the 
thought of making this recor.l was no't an idle one. Indeed, 
I am satisfied that sC'mething of this kind was needed. The 
very difficulty in so many cases of securing the lists asked for 
revealed the fact that in most cases no accura'te list of parish- 
ioners are kept by the Clergy. In the distractions of practi- 
cal p'astoral and missionary work the details o:^ keeping accu- 
rate records involve more labor and difficulty than one would 
suppose before having tried it. But from all Parishes and 
^Missions, with the single exception of a small congregation 
^^•ithout a minister, I did finally secure lists more or less com- 
j^l'v^re. Most of the Clergy responded most cordially and help- 
fully to my appeal ; and I have now entered into the Reg'ister 
which I had made for the purpose, over 8,000 names of bap- 
tized members of the Church in the Diocese of Xorth Carolina. 
But may I beg my brethren of the Clergy, and the laity as well. 



78 Address of the Bishop. 

for their f urtlier co-operation in the completion and perfecting 
of these lists ? Many of the Parish lists are confessedly in- 
complete. In the natnre of the case many inaccuracies mnst 
exist in them. May I noit hoipe that during the res't of the 
year they will keep tilieir lists of parishioners in mind, and 
from time to time m)ake such additions and corrections as may 
serve to hring them nearer to completeness and accuracy ? 
I may seem tO' some persons over particular about little things 
in thus dwelling upon this matter of lists of people's names ; 
but I can not forget that our blessed Master, whom we are to 
represent so far as we can in the care of His work, says, The 
Good Shepheed ^'caeeeth His owx sheep by i^ame." 

For each person of all these eight thousand and over whose 
name had been sent me, I sent to the minister of the Parish 
or Mission a card enclosed in a directed envelope, requesting 
a special offering for the work of the Church in this Diocese 
this opening year of a new century. These offerings are to be 
brought up to this Convention by the Clergy, and presented at 
a special service appointed for that purpose. I now appoint 
for that offering the evening service Thursday, May 23d, 
when we are to be addressed upon the general subject of Mis- 
sions by a representative of our Board of Managers of 
Domestic and Foreign Missions. This offering is a special 
offering, not to be considered as in any way interfering 
with our regular offerings, and to be administered by the 
Bishop through the Archdeacons, as in his judgTiient the 
interests of the work may demiand. This has been mv idea 
and purpose, but I sihoiild like to liave an expression of the 
judgment of ih^ Convenition upon the best method of employ- 
ing and disbursing such sums as may be received. 

In speaking of our Diooesan Missions we should not forget 
our chligations to the general Domestic and Foreign ^Mission- 
ary work of the Church under the direction of our Board of 
^Fanagers in Xew York. It shall be my purpose to encourage 
each Parish and congregation to give re r.ilarly to this general 
^\ork. Our Sunchiy 8cliools give to it their Faster offerings ; 
onr Woman's Auxiliary oontributes systenratically ; but each 
congreii'ation, as a con2:regation, should give at the very least 
one offering each year to its treasury. 

I call your attention also to the duty of all Churchmen 
wirh respect to the General Clergy Belief Fund. Some years 
ago the General Convention suggeat-ed that throughout the 
Fnited States a tithe of the Communion Alms should be given 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 79 

to this riind. The suggc&tion seems to nie mO'S't eminently 
proper. I could wish that all of our Clerg7 might adopt it, 
ns I know that some liave been in tlie haLit of doing. 

And :iO'W, brothren, a startling calamitv which has fallen 
u])0ii a large community of our luTithren reminds us that we 
should look not on our own 'thino's merely, but -also on the 
things oif oithei.^. I need not tell you the storj' of the fire at 
Jacksonville, Florida. The piaiiticulars of that appalling 
event Vi'e fresh in your memory. We ca,n not be insensible 
to such suffering. Shall we not do something to give prac- 
tical expression to oair s\mipiathy ? Some of our churches 
have already exerted themselves in this matter. C^'an not the 
influence of this Convention be exerted to produce a general 
action throughout the Diocese for the pui^Dose of doing some- 
tliing in aid of our suffering brethren I 

In concluding this over-long address, I feel obliged to say 
that I feel greatly encouraged when I survey the condition 
of affairs in the Diocese at large. We have still dilficidties 
and Aveaknesses — but unity of action and self-denying faith 
will enable us. to meet the demands which God's work makes 
upon us. Let me ask both Clergy and people to remember 
that the unit of Church life is the Diocese, The first thing to 
be looked to is th'at we do our duty to that. Local necessities 
will not let themselves be neglected. Let us all stand together 
in the strength of mutual sympathy and co-operation, stimula- 
ting and developing the life and power of the lx)dy, and that 
life and ]:»ower will come back with ever-increasing strength 
and efFectiveness in the members.

The Archdeacon, with the consent of the Bishop, purchased a farm 
with one dwelling-house, and a large barn, at a cost of $1,000. paying $200 
in cash and giving his notes for $800, in payments of $200. with a mort- 
gage on the farm until the notes are cancelled. It is our hope that the 
Farming and Training School may be a means of stimulation to the 
people of Halifax and Warren counties, and help them to recognize the 
fact that labor is honorable. Master George Crummel Pollard gave 
another year here without pay.

In leaving this Parish, by the Bishop's direction, to take up other 
work, it seetns a good time to offer the suggestion that the Diocese 
might lend a helping hand there. The Rev. Mr. Williams, at great ex- 
pense, largely borne by himself, built a very comfortable and neat 
church building there some years ago It has never been consecrated, 
chieflj' because the interior has not been finished. If the Diocese will 
contribute towards the fund for completing and furnishing the church, 
the congregation there will faithfully do its part towards making the 
church what it ought to be. Address Rev. Thos. Trott, Zeb, N. C.

Three visitations were made to this Mission during the year, but on 
account of the weather no services could be held on two of them. One, 
in August, was largely attended and nine children baptized. A good 
man, with sound judgment and some discretion, could do a great and 
substantial work here for the upbuilding of the Kingdom, but his life 
would be one of isolation.

I have held regular monthly services at the Oxford Orphan Asylum, 
and also at the County Poor-house. Ten of the persons confirmed were 
cadets from the Horner Military School, with homes in various parts 
of the State, and were transferred and recorded in their home Parishes. 
This will account for the seeming discrepancy between the number 
confirmed and the number added.

In January last, I am glad to say, I was able to open our Mission 
school. We have a comfortable little school building and an able and 
consecrated teacher in the person of Miss Cornie S. Young. I am afraid, 
on account of the smallness of the salary, I shall not be able to keep 
her. If the school should be closed it would be a great drawback to 
the work at Pittsboro. I go to this Mission once a month.

Since my last report, I am glad to state, we have made a change 
which I feel will be of great advantage to the Church in the future. 
We sold last summer our old church property, which is in the north- 
western section of the city, and purchased a much more desirable site 
on the corner of Wilmington and Cabarrus Streets, where, at an expen- 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 105 

diture of $764.45, we moved the old church building and put it in ser- 
viceable condition. The basement, which is to be used as our Parish 
school-rooms, is yet to be finished, for which we need $200. There is 
room enough on the present site for a new church building and par- 
sonage. 

I go to the Penitentiary the first Sunday in each month and preach 
to the prisoners,

In that part of Rowan County lying between the Wilkesboro and 
new Mocks ville roads on the west and east, and between Second and 
Deal's Creeks on the north and south (a territory in which there was 
no place of worship of any denomination), there has been built since 
last Convention a chapel, to be known as St. Mark's Church, 18x36 feet. 
The Rev. Mr. Trott has kept up services semi-monthly, and has con- 
ducted a Bible class. The land for the church was given, and the en- 
tire cost of the lot and building has been about $200, all of which is 
paid. Communicants from St. George's who will attend this church 
have not yet been transferred.

I have preached at Tillery 9 times. The same number of times at 
Spring Hill. At neither of these places, in the last year, have the con- 
gregations been encouraging, owing to the fact that the Baptists have 
Sunday-school and preaching near by every Sunday, and the few 
Church people are so scattered and distant as not to be able always to 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1901. 113 

attend. Therefore it is not easy to keep up zeal and interest. But as 
water will wear away stones, so constant effort will tell after awhile. 
And ^o I hope good will be done. I have done a great deal of visiting 
among the people of all denominations, and wherever expedient read 
and had prayers with them. This I think is quite as important as the 
preaching, and it seems to be greatly appreciated. 



Smithfield Mission ; the Rev. Charles Fetter. Minister in Charge. 

By the direction of the Bishop. I took charge of the Mission at Smith- 
field, in Johnston County, last October. 

There are eight members of the Church in Smithfield. I give to this 
Mission one Sunday night service in each month. The congregations 
are large. This is the only place in Johnston County where services of 
the Church are held. Our members are about to begin the erection of 
a church, a lot having been secured. There are, I think, thirteen mem- 
bers of the Church in the county.

We feel greatly encouraged over the prospect of our work in War-

are ver}^ zealous for its development. The Archdeacon has made 
several visitations to the Mission, and through him provision was made 
by which the Mission could have at least weekly services during the 
greater part of the year. In addition to my duties as Chaplain of St. 
Augustine's School, I still make monthly visits to Warrenton and to 
St. Ambrose. Raleigh.

REPORT OF THE ARCHDEACON FOR WORK AMOXG 
COLORED PEOPLE. 

To the Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire, D. D., 

Bishop of North Carolina. 
My Dear Bishop : Again by the grace of God I am permitted to ren- 
der to you this account of the work entrusted to my care. It has been 
my earnest endeavor to push forward the advancement of this work 
as rapidly as the means placed at my disposal would allow, and I am 
thankful to say that we have made reasonable progress, as the statisti- 
cal table will show, considering the many difficulties and disadvantages 
under which the work has been prosecuted The following is a record 
of my official acts during the year: Celebrations of the Holy Com- 
munion, 27 : services, 139 ; sermons, 56 : addresses, 58 : visits made to 
schools, 104: baptisms, 12; miles travelled, 4,705, and contributions 
from the Churches and Missions, not including donations and appro- 



122 Report of Archdeacon. 

priations, $2,473.36, an increase of $343 71 over the amount raised last 
year. 

I attended the Sixteenth Annual Conference of Church Workers 
among Colored People, in St. Augustine's Chapel, Raleigh, during the 
second week in October, 1900. This was the first time that the Confer- 
ence had been held in North Carolina, and it was acknowledged by all 
in attendance to have been one of the most useful and inspiring meet- 
ings yet held. 

Later in the same month I attended the Missionary Council, held in 
Louisville. Kentucky, and for the first time in my ministry felt and 
realized the great missionary power of the Church. It was a meeting 
never to be forgotten. 

During the year a new school-house was erected at Statesville, and 
the work put on a better foundation than ever before in its history 

After being closed for several years, the Mission School at Pittsboro 
was reopened under a competent teacher. The prospects for success 
seem to be bright. 

The removal of St Ambrose. Raleigh, from the northwestern to a 
more desirable location in the southeastern part of the city and in the 
midst of a section largely inhabited by colored people, has done more 
to bring the Church in touch with the people than any act previously 
put forth in connection with this special work. The special report 
from this Parish will corroborate this statement. 

The Archdeacon with the consent of the Bishop purchased, at Lit- 
tleton, a farm containing one dwelling-house and a large barn, at a cost 
of $1,000, paying $200 in cash and giving four notes of $200 each for 
one, two, three and four years, with a mortgage on the property until 
the notes can be cancelled. It is our hope that the Farming and 
Training School may be a means of stimulation to the people of Hali- 
fax and Warren counties and help them to recognize the fact that 
labor is honorable. 

The people of Warrenton have purchased and paid for valuable 
property without any outside help. They have an open and barn-like 
building now used for both school and Church services. Mr. Everard 
W. Daniel, a student of the General Theological Seminary, New York, 
gave satisfactory services during the summer months of 1900 without 
pay, and Mr. Theodore Pollard took charge of the school October 1, 
1900, and has brought it up to a standard of proficiency never before 
reached in the history of the Mission. It is our purpose to build here a 
Memorial Outpel in memory of the late Rev. Thomas White Cain, who 
w-as drowned at Galveston, Texas, on the 8th of September 1900. 
Both Mr. Cain and his wife were natives of Warren County. 

The Rev. William B. Perry, deacon, resigned the work at Wilson 
October 1, and returned to Virginia. 

Mr. John H. Clark was immediately appointed Teacher and Lay 
Reader and the Mission has gone on successfully. The school has 



Diocese of North Carolina^ 1901. 123 

grown larger in numbers than under the former Missionary and the 
offerings are not far short of last year. 

St. Luke's Mission, Warren County, deserves encouragement, and a 
suitable house of worship is sadly needed. 

The Chapel at Satterwhite is still unfinished and the Missionary com- 
pelled to live in a rented house. 

Three visitations were made to St. Philip's, Noise, during the }■ ear, 
but on account of the weather no services could be held on two of them. 
The service in August was largely attended and nine children baptized. 
A good man with sound judgment could do a substantial work here for 
the upbuilding of the Kingdom, but his life would be one of great 
self-denial. 

The work at Louisburg is not making any progress. There is no 
competent man to place in charge of the Sunday School and Mission in 
the absence of the Missionary 

I deem it a part of my duty to call your attention to the making out 
of the various reports called for from the Missionaries. It is hard to 
obtain an accurate statement of the baptized persons and communi- 
cants. Some report all baptized persons whose names appear on the 
books whet'^.er known or unknown, alive or dead. Some seem to think 
that once a communicant, always a communicant, and so report from 
year to year, though the Missionaries cannot tell whether the persons 
are living or dead. In my judgment, neither baptized persons, nor 
those once communicants should be reported unless they can be 
accounted for and known to be alive and have some good reason why 
their names should be reported. 

I would like to urge upon the Missionaries through you the necessity 
of keeping an accurate account of all contributions from the Churches 
and Missions under three heads: (1) from the Church or Mission ; (2) 
from the Sunday School and (3) from the day school, and let these 
accounts include all money raised by the people themselves, and in 
such a condition as to be always accessible. 

Opportunities of church advancement are all around us. More than 
three hundred thousand souls are living without the holy influences of 
the Church of God. We can guide and direct the lives of the grown 
in a measure, though we may not expect many of them to seek the 
Church. But we can lay a safe foundation for the young, by educat- 
ing the children, not in superficial attainments, nor in the changing 
and sentimental excitement of religious emotion, but in the deep and 
abiding truths of God's Word, as presented by the careful and system- 
atic training of the Church, and instilling principles into their hearts 
and habits into their lives which will bring them under the power and 
control of the everlasting Gospel. You will find the statistical state- 
ment appended to this report. 

Respectfully submitted, J. H. M. Pollard, 

Mav 1, 1901. Archdeacon.

TWENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT, ST. PETER'S HOSPITAL. 
CHARLOTTE, N. C , 1900. 

Each year we are able to chronicle an advance in the work of the 
Hospital. The number receiving its benefits is almost double that of 
the previous year. The work of the nurses, in the Hospital and when 
sent out, is better and more widely sought. The success of both med- 
ical and surgical treatment has been marked, and from its day of small 
things, twenty-five years ago, it has become nearer what we hope to 
make it, although still far below our ambition. 

The School of Nurses has proved a success The pupil nurses have 
filled nobly many responsible positions during the year, and have car- 
ried aid and comfort to many sick-beds and anxious hearts. 

Several boxes from Women's Auxiliary branches were received, and 
were very valuable and helpful. 

The number of patients received in 1900 was 226 ; male 120, female 
106. Number of days board and care, 4,108 ; deaths 17. 

Patients registered as follows : 124 from Charlotte, 77 from other 
parts of North Carolina, 11 from South Carolina, 2 each from Virginia, 
Georgia, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania ; 1 each from Illinois, New 
York and Maryland, and 3 unknown. 



128 Repoi't of Hospitals. 

Church connections were : 85 Methodists, 29 Baptists, 29 Presbyte- 
rians. 27 Episcopalians, 8 Roman Catholics. 6 A. R. Presbyterians, 8 
Lutherans. 1 Hebrew, and 33 were not members of any church. 
Money received in 1900 |4,998.27

The Hospital still needs fences and an elevator, and we are hoping to 
provide one or the other before long

NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN 
HOSPITAL. CHARLOTTE, N. C, 1900. 
During 1900 this Hospital has pursued its work quietly, but effect- 
ively, as the record shows : 

108 patients were received during the year ; 68 males. 40 females 
Total number days board and care, 1,365 Six deaths occurred, of 
which 4 were due to accidents, and the sufferers died soon after admis- 
sion. Fifty-eight were from Charlotte, 38 from other parts of North 
Carolina. 11 from South Carolina, and one from G^^orgia. For 30 
patients board was paid — $422.00 ; 78 were charity cases. 

Money received in 1900 §1,294.90 

Balance from 1899 45. 87 

Total cash $1,340.77 

Expenses in 1900 - 1,241.12 

Balance to 1901 99.65 

The expen.ses are surprisingly small when the number cared for is 
considered. 

The Hospital has, as usual, received several valuable boxes of sheets, 
clothing and other supplies, from branches of the Woman's Auxiliary 
in several dioceses. The Colored Graded School and St. Michael's Par- 
ish School, sent a large and most acceptable Thanksgiving supply of 
provisions. 

The year 1900 clo.sed without debt, and a surplus of $99 65 carried to 
1901, but the Hospital still lacks the much-needed Operating Room 
and its equipment. We have a beginning of the necessary fund laid 
by, but need at least $1,500 for building, furnishing and repairs to 
house.

subscribed by any congregation shall appear inadequate, or when no 
report has been made, the Archdeacon may, either in person or by 
deput}'. make a canvass of such congregation for subscriptions for 
these two objects.
